{ picnic perfect }


There's been no shortage of excitement this summer: gatherings of friends and afternoons at the pool, new restaurants and bike rides. And the most exciting event is also a little scary: moving into D's apartment later this summer. I admit, I'm nervous about transitioning from "me" to "we."

Let's take a moment to absorb that, shall we?

Since his cat seems hellbent on destroying any nice furniture, mine is headed to storage. But it's left me daydreaming about the interior tweaks I can make to make the place feel like home. ("Honey, how attached are you to your lampshades?") Our first task: transform the balcony into a cozy area for dining and entertaining a la fresco.
